Fabulous, Flavorful, Farfalle Pasta!

As the More is More Mom®, I’m all about…….more flavorful pasta dinners! While my pals won’t necessarily eat foods that are “touching” or “mixed together”, Chuck, my mom and I thoroughly enjoyed this Chicken Farfalle Pasta. The beauty of this dish was that I was able to serve it deconstructed (meaning as a plain old grilled chicken breast with a side of buttered noodles) to the kids, while the rest of us loved it, bursting with flavor, as it was intended to be……

Chicken Farfalle Pasta:

Serves 4-6

3 chicken breasts, roasted or grilled, cut into bite size pieces


2 Tbsp olive oil

2 large red onions, thinly sliced

2 Tbsp white wine vinegar or Sherry vinegar

2 tsp sugar

16 0z of farfalle pasta

1 cup white wine

1 cup chicken broth

8 tomatoes, diced

½ cup basil leaves, rough chopped

2 Tbsp oregano

4-6 cups of loosely packed spinach or arugula

1 cup of soft, creamy crumbled cheese like goat cheese or feta

In a skillet, over medium-high heat, heat olive oil

Add onions, sprinkling with salt

Stir until they start to get soft and slightly brown, approximately 10 minutes

Reduce the heat to medium, adding;



Stir onions until nicely browned and caramelized

Transfer onions to a bowl and set aside

Bring a large pot of water to a bowl

Cook the farfalle to desired doneness (we like ours mushier rather than al dente)


In the skillet, add;


Bring to a boil, and maintain the heat until the wine reduces by about half




Chicken broth





Dash of salt and pepper

Cook until warmed through, about 5 minutes

On individual dinner plates, place a handful of baby spinach

Top with the pasta mixture

Sprinkle with a heaping helping of cheese

Serve and enjoy!

More pasta, more bursts of flavor, more family dinners…….
